USA KIPS covers did not get the vent. Google for KDX125 or similar non-USA models. That tube is a lot longer. My KX250 and YZ250 have such vents.

Ok thanks. Still didn't get much from google. From what i can gather from a few forum discussions is that the hose is supposed to run down the front of the frame and just drip on the floor. I will set it up this way again.

cheers

That's what I think, just runs down the front and drips.

FYI - Tried to unscrew the lugs and they just snapped off. Looks like they may have been glued in there. Swing arm will need to come off to tap the threads, bugger. Anyway I can give it a tidy up and respray whilst it is off

Good to know, I was pondering changing my guides when I put new lines on as there were a bit loose on the coarse thread but couldn't be bothered. Next time I have it all apart I'll do the same and drill and tap for the newer style ones.
